Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar will host its next exceptional taste and learn on Friday, April 26 at 5 p.m. This popular monthly gathering offers award-winning, high-quality Italian wines and authentic wine education, along with expertly paired, delicious Italian accompaniments prepared by Executive Chef Francesco DiCaudo.
A wine merchant with incomparable connections to the best wineries, Neal Rosenthal will be Ferraro’s partner and presenter for the evening’s event. Rosenthal represents only the finest producers in Europe. He launched his company with two growers from the Piedmont, considered by many one of the best wine regions in the world due to the prestigious wines that are produced from its indigenous grapes.
The evening will begin with a sparkling white wine from Bisson, a winery located in Liguria on Italy’s northwestern coast. Following that wine will be three outstanding producers from the Piedmont, including San Fereolo, Rovellotti and De Forville. As always, Ferraro’s award-winning chef will prepare brilliant dishes to accompany each wine. The full menu follows:
